For me, my Wright bucket list would be:

1) Touring the interiors of the 4 textile block houses. I've seen them all from the outside.

2) The interior of Hollyhock, which I will be doing in a couple of months.

3) The San Francisco area works: Morris Gift Shop, Marin County, and Hanna.

Welcome to the site, Mr. Levin. As a Michigan based Wright aficionado, I am very interested in what you have to say about these very important and interesting Wright houses. To answer your question about original owners and apprentices, I know Alma Goetsch and Katherine Winckler moved from their Wri...

SDR, the thing I remember most is the feeling that I was in a cave with a low wood ceiling. Roderick is correct...the curved living room is a bit awkward, large and less is more would be more effective. The kitchen is beautiful...perhaps the best FLW kitchen I've ever seen. The upstairs was off limi...

I've been in this house twice. Not my favorite FLW, but its an interesting concept. The owners have opened it up to tours via the annual Wright in Wisconsin event, and may be open to talking to you. They seemed like very nice people.

I am traveling 2 hours by motorcycle with my dad to see the house. Knowing my dad, he might even buy the place on a whim.

My list: 1) See the FLW works in Northern California (Morris Gift Shop, Hanna, Marin County buildings). 2) Tour the interior of at least one of the textile block houses. I've seen them from the exterior, but have never been inside. 3) Own a FLW barrel chair. 4) Write a book on FLW. It's only a matte...

This is kind of a dumb question, but....

What did they do for water at this camp? Well? Tower of some sort?

Anyone know?

I need some * Wright stats

Does anyone know the following:

#of total building (residential, commercial, anything) designs Wright made
# of these designs that were built:
# that have been torn down (counting Carr and the Mercedes Dealership, I believe it to be 120).

From those numbers, we would get what remains.

Thanks!

What's the story with Iovanna's daughter? I haven't heard much about her other than she was estranged from her mother?

Could someone in the know fill me in?

Thank you!

Greetings From The Palmer House

My wife and I have spent the last two nights at the Palmer house. It is an incredible house that each and everyone of you should experience. The numerous pictures that have been published in the various books and magazines do not do justice to what a beautiful work of art this house is. I encourage ...

I live in Michigan and have been to most of the Wright sites one way or another. My rundown (forgive me for redundant information): Affleck - Worth a look. Occasional tours are given through Lawrence Technological University, who own the house. Lawrence has recently paid more attention to the house ...

I had the opportunity to visit the home during a fundraiser and I echo the article's sentiments. Messrs Silk and Morgan have been exemplary stewards of the house, and have been generous with showing it for philanthropic and other purposes. They should get an award of some kind. As an aside, my wife ...
